10 Using quotesThe words that precede and follow a quotation are just as important as the quotation itself.You can think of each quote as the filling in a sandwich: it may be tasty on its own, but it’s messy to eat without some bread on either side of it.Your words can serve as the “bread” that helps readers digest each quote easily.
11 Using Quotes-3 Tips 1. Provide context for each quotation. Do not rely on quotations to tell your story for you. It is your responsibility to provide your reader with context for the quotation. The context should set the basic scene for when, possibly where, and under what circumstances the quotation was spoken or written.2. Attribute each quotation to its source.Tell your reader who is speaking. Here is a good test: try reading your text aloud. Could your reader determine without looking at your paper where your quotations begin? If not, you need to attribute the quote more noticeably.3. Explain the significance of the quotation.Once you’ve inserted your quotation, along with its context and attribution, don’t stop! Your reader still needs your assessment of why the quotation holds significance for your paper.
12 Using Quotes- ExampleWhen Franklin Roosevelt gave his inaugural speech on March 4, 1933, he addressed a nation weakened and demoralized by economic depression. During his speech Roosevelt declared, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. With that message of hope and confidence, the new president set the stage for his next one-hundred days in office and helped restore the faith of the American people in their government.
